ASA Intermountain Pro 4 Challenge Series debuts 2005 season schedule
Boise, Idaho (March 21, 2005) 2005 marks the inaugural season for the ASA Intermountain Pro 4 Challenge Series based out of Boise, Idaho. The series will be contested thirteen times at four different speedways located in Idaho and Utah in the 2005 season. Todd Labronte, President of the ASA IP4CS is pleased with the winter progress that the Series has made in its first year and looks forward to presenting a quality 4 cylinder series for the fans and promoters throughout the Intermountain West. The Series will combine the cars and teams that have raced under the Western Idaho Racing Association Late Model Lite division and the Utah Late Model Lites based out of Salt Lake City, Utah.
The Series will kick off its season April 16th at the Magic Valley Speedway in the first of three 2005 visits to the 1/3 mile banked oval. Steve York is the promoter of the facility in Twin Falls, Idaho. The very next week, April 23rd the Series will visit the tight track of Meridian Speedway for the first time of four trips to the 1/4 mile facility located in downtown Meridian, Idaho which is promoted by former Indy Racing League standout Davey Hamilton.
The ASA IP4CS then picks up and moves south May 14th to promoter Doug Binstock's Rocky Mountain Raceways located in West Valley City, Utah for the first of four scheduled events in the '05 season. Also included on the schedule is newly named Idaho Motor Speedway located in Eagle, Idaho which will include two events this season. IMS is promoted by Adam Nelson who recently changed the name of the racetrack from Chaparral Speedway for the 2005 season.
The Series will run 35-50 lap feature events on the larger IMS and RMR tracks while featuring 75 lap main events at Meridian and Magic Valley. Each speedway will have a special event tagged on during the season in which the series will be highlighted and visiting cars from other series are expected to run. ASA Member track Meridian Speedway will feature a special two-day show July 2nd and 4th called the Independence Day Cup that made its debut in 2004. Over 40 four-cylinder teams are expected in attendance representing six states on the west coast.
Idaho Motor Speedway will present its third annual 4-cylinder shootout on Saturday, September 3rd on Labor Day weekend as this event also expects 35 plus cars as it has drawn over the past two seasons of the event. The Sunoco "100" will be staged at Magic Valley Speedway on August 13th and a special event has been planned on August 20th at Rocky Mountain Raceways which will include visitors from a California based Pro 4 series.
